Lace

Banish all thoughts of naff pop music, it’s time to embrace black lace and add a sensual vibe to your seasonal day look.

Sexy anti-chafing shorts might sound like an oxymoron, but how else to describe these? They certainly look more enticing than the standard jersey numbers. Italian stretch-satin, continental lace and sheer mesh are strategically placed to create the look of luxurious lingerie with practical purpose and yes, they’re even machine-washable. Beautifully constructed and made with wearability in mind. From £39.95 bloominsexy.com

Our comeback klaxon is sounding loudly. Lace tights are looking fresh once more and – as ever – Falke have it covered. Also available in chocolate and ultraviolet. Falke Recovers Lace Tights £28 falke.com

HM Studio consistently has fashion-forward pieces in its online only collection. Snap up this lace body for just £29.99; it will look incredible on its own but also fabulous layered under a silk shirt. hm.com

Lily Gardner’s collection of jewellery uses delicate black lace made on 19th-century looms in Northern France. From hallmarked silver pendants, rings and cufflinks to striking simple modern pieces, including this Shaped Lace Cuff which sees the fabric suspended in Perspex. £125 lilygardner.com

Arguably more of a beauty enhancement than a fashion accessory, but who cares when they’re this pretty? Paperself’s range of lace lashes show scenes including parading peacocks, funfair carousels and even the London skyline. We love this intricate imagining of a lace garden. £14 paperself.com

We’re including this white lace piece as the exception which proves the rule because, after all, ‘tis the season of the collar. Where have they all come from? Springing up like mushrooms on t-shirts, tops and jumpers across the land. Buy into the trend with a detachable number, like this from Cos. With abstract lace applique, it will 2020ise your existing wardrobe. £35 cosstores.com

We love a fruity accessory: always colourful, often playful and never bad for the spirit. Here’s our pick of the bunch!

I cannot overstate how much I am yearning for the ditch of functional shoes right now. I mean, I love a chunky boot and a cushioned sole as much as the next flat-footed person but oh, for a heel!

The nostalgic appeal of yesteryear and a simpler life feels all-too compelling for Gen Zs and the burgeoning cottagecore trend is their response. The appeal though, can be felt by all ages.
